Disturbed weather patterns

Recommended Posts

I can't help but notice that we are having a bit of a series of Atlantic storms (even one Hurricane Ophelia earlier)

 

The thought has crossed my mind that all this stirring up of the atmosphere might  lead to an increased warming of the  Arctic.

 

Anything in that?

The opposite may be the case. A warmer arctic could be what is disrupting weather patterns.

Could the processes  mutually reinforce one another?

It's way to complex to know for sure, all we can say for sure is, global warming is real and it will affect the weather.

AFAIK weather is a result, rather than a cause, of such things. But there is feedback in all systems, so it's possible.  (Keep in mind this is far from my area of expertise)
